• Registration

    Registration is required. See registration page for ways to register. By registering, you are confirming your seat in a class – on a first come, first service basis. You do not have to be a Big Lake resident to participate in classes.


    You are registered for a class once payment has been received. You will not receive a confirmation of registration. We will contact you if a class is cancelled or if you are on a waiting list.


    Payment is due in full at time of registration. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card. Make checks payable to Big Lake Community Education.


    A limited number of scholarships are available for qualified classes & individuals. Contact Community Ed for eligibility requirements.  



    Class fees cannot be prorated for any reason. Cancellations made at least 2 days before the first class will be refunded the class fee minus $5 or 10%, whichever is greater. There will be NO refunds after classes have started or for weather-related closings. If the class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, a full refund will be issued. If you paid by cash or check, please allow 2-3 weeks for a refund check.



    Community Education staff may photograph and/or videotape participants, and use the material for promotional reasons on our website, catalogs, social media channels, and/or by local media outlets without any obligation to provide compensation to those photographed or any obligation to obtain prior consent for use. By registering for any of our classes, you are giving permission for you and/or your child(ren) to be photographed and/or videotaped. If you do not wish for this to occur, please inform us at the time of registration in writing.

    Inclement Weather

    When bad weather or emergencies cause cancellation of school activities, Community Education classes will also be cancelled. Make-up classes are not guaranteed. Watch our Facebook page for closings.

    Class Disclaimer

    Fitness and other activity classes can be strenuous and cause injury. By registering, you agree to release Big Lake Schools and its employees of all liability of accidents or injuries incurred during a class by yourself and/or listed participants.
